Huffington Post recognized downtown Reno’s Whitney Peak Hotel on their “Best Hotels in the World, Fall 2016” list
“We are very excited to be featured as one of the best hotels in the world. It’s amazing that we were picked with such great competition throughout the world. It really is a testament to the hotel design, company culture and some of the best service staff around. We hope to continue to drive progression and be a key player in the hospitality realm and hope this recognition brings more people to check out Reno,” said Eric Olson, general manager in an email with NNBW.
Whitney Peak Hotel was named on Richard’s Picks: Best Hotels in the World, Fall 2016 list. This is the first year the Whitney Peak Hotel has been on Richard Bangs’ list of best hotels.
“We are excited to be featured on Richard Bangs’ list and thrilled he got to experience what Whitney Peak Hotel is all about,” said Olson. “His work takes him all over the world to exotic destinations, where he has stayed in a variety of places, from luxury resorts to themed boutique hotels. Recognition on this list really shows what Whitney Peak has to offer.”
On the list, Bangs describes Whitney Peak Hotel and the giant climbing wall as, “an urban tribute to the mountains, lakes, and wild steppes that sprawl throughout the state. The hotel is trying to bring Nevada’s epic outside in, and is succeeding in hearts and spades.”
Rankings for the 12 Best Hotels in the World, Fall 2016 are based entirely upon Bangs’ own discoveries that he deems worthy of sharing. It is a highly personal catalogue of hotels that he found special in regard to coziness, service and quality.
